Parking Reform as Urban Game Changer

For urban planners, parking rules established decades ago have become a contentious 21st-century challenge. Parking takes up about one-third of land area in U.S. cities; nationwide, there are an estimated eight parking spaces for every car.

A heritage soul meets a modern aesthetic: That’s the appeal of tiles made by Italian company Ragno. Since its founding in Sassuolo, Italy, in 1949, the company has manufactured tiles for floors and walls that are every bit as rooted in traditional Mediterranean craftsmanship as they are practical, hard-wearing, and high-performing for modern spaces.
